Leicester are set to complete the signing of French striker Yann Kermorgant, Vital Leicester understands.

Kermorgant is currently unattached after seeing out his contract with Stade Reims, who were relegated from the French second division last season.

As a result, Nigel Pearson has swooped to capture the 27-yearold striker, who scored nine times for Stade Reims last year. It has been suggested, however, that his real asset to the side comes in the form of assists more than his goals.

Kermorgant admitted having talks with City three weeks ago, and it now appears as though the player will join the Foxes in due course.
